We are 3rd year Annual Pass Holders. Great for Kids & Families. Easy road that is constantly plowed. We skiied Jan 3rd. Academy was starting to show that snow was thin near the top. rest of the run was good. Chair7 had rocks and obstacles showing. Light Crowds. We went Sunday the 6th. VIRGIN POWDER everywhere!! Daughters loved the SemiPrivate lessons. Honest 2 Feet+ new snow. Very Light Crowds. Skip work Go Ski. Warm GeoDome with cold beer and football makes the nonskiers happy. The crew that rents skiis and boots are very helpful. Might only gripe is the car drivers that do not use turnouts. This is not Sierra's fault.
